Tory Burch Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2014 New York

After last season’s highly embellished crystal covered collection, designer Tory Burch took a bit of a breather this time around. Stepping back from all of the ornamentation and taking refuge in the natural beauty of her garden. It’s organic grace, but also its structured arrangement, became a strong backbone for her spring show.

“The Queen Anne’s lace you see on the catwalk actually came from my garden,” said Burch after the show. “And my garden blueprint is also in there,” she added referring perhaps to some garden prints that appeared cut into sporty tops and short skirts. Other fun garden-esque looks included a latticework leather jacket and matching guipure lace skirt, some crochet pieces that looked like an aerial view of a gazebo and hedge print pants.

But the garden wasn’t the only place Burch found inspiration. The wavy blue pool printed catwalk clued it’s way into another one of the designer’s themes, the casual elegance of the French Rivera in the 1960s and the classic French film- La Piscine.

“Seeing that movie again recently just set me off,” explained the designer. “Seeing how exquisite Romy Schneider and Jane Birkin were, and that sort of casual elegance of that time was appealing.”

Weaving the garden theme into the relaxed shapes of the 60s help keep this show from looking too retro. Also, as this was a rather clean collection with simpler shapes the fact that the designer put a lot of attention on fit help give the pieces that all important crispness.

If this show is what comes of the designer just taking walks in her garden and watching classic French films. Maybe a trip to Paris is in order. Just imagine what Burch could do with that sort of inspiration.
